OF INTEREST TO FARMERS o—-o A spring wheat that yields from two to fifteen bushels more per acre than any other variety and that matures a week to ten days earlier, that won the $1,000 prize offered for the best wheat in America, that is declared to be the best variety that ever went under the rollers of the Minneapolis flouring mills, and that has other features to commend it, is worth the attention of Montana growers, and to attract it, State Grain Inspector J. E. Templeton has collected considerable data on the new variety. It has been named Marquis. Sam ples Mr. Templeton has received he pronounces to be the choicest wheat he has seen. Montana growers desir ing to try this new variety can obtain from Mr. Templeton the names of Ca nadian and Montana growers who have seed for sale. R. M. Hillman, a Canadian grower, writes Mr. Templeton the Marquis va riety "is earlier than the earliest va riety of wheat, and the yield per acre is much greater than that of any oth er wheat raised in my experience. The average yield is from ten to fif teen bushels more per acre than of the other grades I have raised. An other characteristic which is of great advantage to the farmer is the fact that the berry clings to the husk much more tenaciously than any other variety of wheat, thus saving the loss in handling which is so apt to occur in any thoroughly dried wheat." Something of the history of Marque wheat is thus given by a seed house, to which Mr. Templeton wrote for In formation : October 13, 1913. Mr. J. E. Templeton, State Grain In spection Department, Heelna, Mont. Dear Sir—In reply to your favor of October 11, we are pleased to supply you with thefollowing information re garding Marquis wheat: "Marquis wheat won the $1,000 prize offered by Sir Thomas Shaughnessy for the 'best wheat in America,' also the $3,000 prize at Lethbridge, Canada, in a competition open to the world. The first experiments were conduct edand the variety fully developed by Drs. Charles and William Saunders of the Central Experiment station, Otta wa, Canada, by crossing the red fife and the hard red Calcutta, a native of India acclimated to this country. By scientific cross-breeding a variety was produced that inherited the re markable earliness of the Calcutta and the frost-resistant and yielding quali ties of the red fife. This wheat was named Marquis. It is rapidly displac ing all other varieties in Canada and is proving equally successful in this country. "In appearance Marquis wheat is similar to red fife, but the heads as a rule are heavier and the stalks shorter, making it less likely to dodge. The kernel is flinty, a little darker red and more plump than the fife. It is beardless, having smooth, yellow chaff. The most valuable feature lies in its extreme earliness, as it maturer one week or ten days earlier than red fife. Threshing returns indicate yields of 40 to 50 bushels per acre; weight, 64 to 66 pounds per measured bushel. At our request the Pillsbury Flour Mills company tested Marquis wheat and reported it to be of the highest milling quality. Not in many years has such a valuable variety been intro duced. It is receiving a great deal of publicity through the press and will be a splendid seller. "The Pillsbury Flour Mills company gave us the following milling test: Color..........................102 White Gluten _______________________ 40.65 Absorption ____________ 65 Volume _....................... 50 Moisture ____________________ 13.5 Weight ____________________ 64 lbs. Mr. J. E. Templeton: " 'Color fully equal to No. 1 hard, the latter is creamy while Marquis is wnite; gluten is high percentage of A Great Potato "WILSON'S RUSSET." I desire to call the attention of farm ers to a new variety of potato now on exhiibtion at the Williams Drug Store. This potato is a native of Fer gus county, having originated at my place as a chance seedling from Early Rose. After four years' careful test ing on various soils by the side of oth er well-known varieties, I have found it by far the best potato for this sec tion yet produced; of rapid growth, matures early, unaffected by. scab, and just as good the next spring as when first dug, with a flavor that even "Mc Pherson" could not kick about and all around cooking quality unsurpassed. Not so heavy a cropper as some of the varieties that do not mature here, but gives a fairly good yield. Without any irrigation and no rain after June 26th my main patch on ground where all snow in winter blows away yielded 302 bushels per acre. Another patch where winter snow melts and soil is very fertile yielded over 525 bushels per acre. The hill on exhibition is from this patch and quite a number of hills were larger than this one. Aside from its other excellent quali ties, it is the ideal potato for this sec tion because of its rapid growth and early maturity. This season my pota toes were planted May 10th, came up May 25th, and I dug new potatoes July 4th. The tubers were fully matured Aug. 18th. All live up-to-date farmers will want this potato. But as the quantity of seed is limited and I would like to give it as wide a distribution as possible, I would prefer to not sell more- than 100 pounds to any one per son. Five cents per pound delivered in Lewistown next spring, or four cents per pound at my place, three miles east of Gilt Edge. Order now, for they will soon be sold. Address, W. E. WIL80N Box 68, Gilt Edge, Montana. 10-2l-2tp good, average quality; absorption runs from 2 to 2% per cent, better than the average spring wheat; moisture about the same as our driest wheat this year, but if it has been kept In bags for some time there has proba bly been some absorption; weight, 64 pounds per bushel, insures a good yield of the best quality flour. On the whole this is an unusually fine wheat and unless changed decidedly In character by the Ff'il and climatic conditions of the United States, which is not likely, the use of this wheat for Beed should prove to great advantage to both farmer and miller and should be encouraged by everyone interested in the production of good grain.'

Proximity to the infernal regions, perhaps; for they are saying that Washington is "as hot as hell." The house had the nauseating DiggSr Caminetti case before it.

All sorts of evil intentions and wicked motives were ascribed to At torney-General McReynolds and even intimated of the president. It was Clayton of Alabama, who, closing the' chatter, for it could not be called a I debate, got in a scriptural sockdola-! ger. We quote from the reports: "Now, Mr. Speaker, I want to com-; mend to the gentleman from Cali fornia (Mr. Kahn) something I will read from a book that he may have ■ heard of.

The Sun disbelieves in the spirit of hypocrisy, moral and political in which so many public men approach that subject. Even in this generation and congregation of hypocrites few things can be more Tartuflan than the zeal of Republicans and bull moosers to make political capital out of the Tires by the Automobile Owners of the West is shown on every road everywhere by the Enormous Number of these "Mightier Than the Road" Tires in daily use. Year in and year out under every con dition that a tire can be subjected to, United States Tires have "stood up" and "de livered." They are produced through the co-op erative efforts of four of the largest and most modem tire factories in the world. Such an aggregate of strong points has been built into these famous tires that they have had to "make good." Their real milage wear is demonstrated day in and day out on the Western roads. Their toughness and durability is proved daily under every conceivable condition. The grinding and grueling wear and tear that they "stand up" to has alone estab lished for United States Tires their well earned title of "Mightier Than the Road." All over the world United States Tires are giving day in and day out satisfaction. Were the verdict of the West alone to decide the merits of these famous tires, the answer is self-evident when one sees the actual numbers in use on the Western roads. The overwhelming number of automobile manufacturers who have selected United States Tires as the standard equipment of their 1914 cars prove unquestionably that United States Tires are today the accepted standard for real tire service* Lewistown Representative, LEWISTOWN AUTO COMPANY NOTE THIS—Dealers who sell United States Tires sell the best of everything.

The attorney general made an error! of judgment, but the error consisted not in any excessive partiality for "the; rich, but In failing to appreciate the amount of demagogy, patent and lat-j ent, in these United States. Will the next Republican platform "denounce" the democracy as "the party of black slavery before the war and of white j slavery after the war?" This Is the simple truth. "White slavery" was an invention of the hys ■ terical women seeking exploitation and notoriety and the cheap maga ] zlnes seeking sensationalism and ad vertising. It was a mere catch-line I to be run until it grew threadbare through the yellow newspapers. Every scan-mag disclosure was magnified in to a case of "white slavery." Thus this Diggs-Caminettl case; a couple of worthless young men and wanton young women go upon a shameless escapade from one state to another; and. lo, the nasty frolic becomes "a white slave case." Truly, we are cutting our party pol itics rather low down!
